Sorry, i'm writing 3 years later...

Now mysql seems to bind to address, this way keeps only listening to connections that came from localhost, improving security.

So if you want to access from other computer through another address, let's assumme your mysql server has the ip and you want to acces through the interface that has that address, then you have to edit your my.cnf loaded file (usually in /etc/mysql/my.cnf) and change:

bind-address =


bind-address =


bind-address =

this last to get it binded to all interfaces.

then restart mysql (/etc/init.d/mysql restart)

that's all...

Good luck!
